California Emission is pretty damn funny. We (930 owners) have an advantage and in some instances a dis-advantage. Advantage: no computer diagnostics plug in-ins. Dis-advantage: young smog guys don't know what the heck they are looking at. They just go by the book. Case in point: I took my 77 930 cabo to a smog guy and he was asking all kinds of questions... where's this? where's that? He actually asked me where my check engine light was? HELLO? Ironically, I had removed a toggle switch on the dash and replaced it with a shinny black plug (kind of a button) I pointed to it and said there it is... he bought it and passed the car. Too *****in funny.

Anyway, talk to a local wrench... he can get it smogged for a relatively inexpensive price. Not that anyone of us condone these practices, they are available to stand up Porsche owners like ourselves.

Good luck.
